Hidden origami cranes still in the library….   Leave a comment

Although our Library After Dark Open House has come to a close, we still have dozens of origami paper cranes hidden around the library (I guess we were too good at finding hiding spots for them). If you find one, bring it to the Reference Desk– you can still claim your prize!

Library After Dark-Success!   Leave a comment

Thanks to everyone who participated in our National Library Week festivities. About fifty people participated in our Library After Dark Open House– voting for their favorite Recycled Book Contest entry, creating a READ poster of themselves, being interviewed for the new library YouTube video, going on scavenger hunts, finding origami cranes, buying books at the Library Book Sale, eating good food, winning prizes, and having fun!

Here’s a look at some of the entries that were submitted to the Recycled Book Contest:

After some careful tallying of votes by our librarians Michele Ukleja and Jim Edstrom…

Our first place winner was… Mary Warner, with her hand crafted and altered book creation:

Our second place winner was… Carol Thomas, with a photo frame that she created using an old book cover:

Congrats, and thanks again to everyone who participated and helped make this year’s Library After Dark a success. To view more photos of our Library After Dark activities, check out our Flickr photo stream.

Green Living Research Guide   Leave a comment

The library is “Going Green” with our National Library Week festivities, thinking of ways to reduce, reuse, and recycle. We’re selling all of our withdrawn books and audiovisual material in the book sale next week, holding a recycled book contest for people to be creative with old and seemingly unusable books, collecting paper to be recycled and binding them into notepads, etc. We’ve also put together a Green Living research guide to help you live a greener life.

In the Green Living research guide, you’ll find information about reference books, electronic books, and regular books on sustainable living, green architecture, and the environment, among other topics. You can also see the audiovisual materials we own on green living, as well as streaming media through databases like Films on Demand (that you can use to view streaming films on your computer at home). The Green Living research guide also lists a wide variety of websites that might be of interst, and can start you on your way to thinking about ways you can live more green.
